Religion is in what we read and watch. It’s on social media. In our workplaces and discrimination laws. And it’s present in what we wear and how we behave. Explore and challenge various faiths on our religion degree. Ask vital questions about religion’s place in the world as you explore major global faiths in a variety of social and cultural contexts. You’ll focus on people’s experiences of their beliefs, studying their philosophies and practices. And you’ll explore religious and non-religious spirituality of new and old faith movements. This includes less orthodox readings of religion, such as witchcraft, paganism and mysticism. You’ll come to understand religious traditions and the influence they have at local, national, and global levels. We deliver our BA (Hons) Religion degree using research-informed explorations of religion, philosophy and sociology. You’ll examine how people use digital media to express their religious identities. Whether you have faith or not, this inclusive programme will help you engage with the world, exploring faith through individual and collective perspectives. You’ll look at belief systems through the lenses of family origins, ethnicity and disability, along with gender, sexuality and social status.
